We've reached a new stage in cleantech. Years after the VC bubble popped, startups are pursuing new approaches to scaling, finding customers, partnering and raising money.

Those new strategies to scaling early-stage cleantech were crystallized this year. And we're going to talk about them.

This week, we recorded The Energy Gang live at Greentown Labs, the largest cleantech incubator in the country. We discussed a wide range of trends: the emergence ofblockchain a diversifying class of corporate investors, the blitz of mergers and acquisitions, low-cost ways of scaling new technologies, how to ask for money, and where startups can engage in policy.

Plus, we ran through the top headlines of the week: Tesla's 100-megawatt battery, the heinous Congressional tax bill, and the Bonn climate talks.
